"Once you’re done you can store the coffee in the fridge for maximum freshness. "
I appreciate y'all's commitment to minimising contact with anything that's not a mason jar but that's just fuckin rong sonnnnnnn. You got about 24 hours before the freshness of the grinds becomes indistinguishable from pre-ground*. Putting it in the fridge or freezer is generally thought to accelerate that process overall.
*at a shop, not necessarily bulk Folgers or similar products.

Even less than that. The rule of 15s say 15 minutes for ground 15 days for roasted whole beans and 15 months for greens. The 15 days can probably be streched though. You're also much better off going to a shop and getting it ground on site once a week than using a crappy grinder like this https://prima-coffee.com/learn/article/grinder-basics/is-it-always-better-grind-fresh

The 15/15/15 thing is just a guideline to "peak freshness" (green or roasted). Growing techniques, varietal, storage method, wash, roast, and quality of grind all affect the shelf life of coffee.
